Marble Blast updated, free maps!

Mike from K1lla's Xbox Domain sends us news of his super spiffy interview with Pat Wilson, lead programmer of Marble Blast Ultra from Garage Games. The topic of the interview: the impending update. The update promises to fix lots of little bugs found in Marble Blast, including some kind of fix for people who drop out of games to keep their stats from going down. The really big news is that the update will include 11 (eleven!) new multiplayer maps. Garage Games is planning on releasing themes and gamer pics on Marketplace as well. Unfortunately, there is still no concrete release date for the update. Hit the read link to check out the whole interview.

1. Very cool surprise!

These updates are coming out of nowhere.

3. Oh Jebus Priced. And I JUST 200/200'd that evil damn game last night about 1am... Well, for a brief moment, I have mastered the game.

But not "mastered" like those crazy MBU forum peeps that physically mod their contoller to decrease their times. Insane.

4. Use a real MBU pic, not one from MBG. >__

5. Ugh! The post's title makes it sound like it's already happened! I was ready for some renewed marbley goodness! Have at you!

6. More imporant than new maps, is that they are going to fix the friends leaderboard bug that is a real pain if you want to compete with a friend. Hope this comes out soon.

7. How about "Marble Blast Update on the way"?
'Updated' implies past tense. I got all excited for a second there.

8. hmm. I gave up on this game long ago because of the friends glitch and lack of multi maps.

This all seems niec and all, and since its free, ill give it a try. But I cant see myself playing MBU further then 1 or 2 days after this update (I would deffenitly not pay for these maps).

The hostility here is because this patch (and maps) should of been out 1 month after the game came out, not 6 months after.

A little too late I say.

9. What i would really love is if they updated this great game with some kind of local multiplayer action.

I still can't understand why they go to such great efforts to make all these games LIVE! compatible, but you're screwed if you have friends over who want to play at the same time.

i feel that the attention being spent on catering to xbox live! is KILLING local multiplayer and local multiplayer coop game components..

and it's a damn shame!
